NTEN: The Nonprofit Technology Network

Last week, Joleen and I spoke at Minnesota Council of Nonprofits' (MCN) annual conference, Nonprofits in Motion: Momentum for a New Minnesota (NPIM14), and we have a lot to share!

After months of thoughtful reflection, accompanied by much weeping and gnashing of teeth, we are close to finalizing the design of the new NTEN homepage. Our web design experts from Cornershop Creative have put together a page that we hope will fulfill the intended goals of the redesign: to create a more dynamic, easy to navigate website that will help to support our active community of nonprofit professionals to connect, learn, and change the world. Now it's time to turn it over to our trusted community of people like you to see if our website redesign mockup actually achieves our intended goals in the wild. Will you help us participate in this quick first impression testing?

Last year, NTEN Community Champions helped to raise over $36,000 to support the NTEN Community Challenge, which enhanced NTEN's program accessibility, including sending over 50 people to the 2014 Nonprofit Technology Conference (14NTC) and the 2014 Leading Change Summit (14LCS) with scholarships.

To whom did the scholarships go, and what was the impact of your donation? As we try to raise support for 2015, we wanted to share the impact of your donation from last year, from the voices of our scholarship recipients. Today, we want to introduce you to Ray Smith, Operations Coordinator of the Corita Art Center.

Member Appreciation Month (MAM) celebrations are underway! One week in and we've already had several free-for-Members webinars, prizes, and best of all, lots of #ntenthanks from community members sharing their gratitude for and with one another.

Member Appreciation Month (MAM) is here! All month long, we have free programs, special prizes, and other surprises exclusively for NTEN Members as our way of letting our Members know how much we appreciate all they do for us all year long.

So, what’s up this week?

As the grand finale to NTEN’s first-ever Leading Change Summit, a number of intrepid 14LCS attendees pitched and developed 24 awe-inspiring projects during the Idea Accelerator. The Summit may have ended, but many of these projects are only beginning. Today, we want to introduce you to “Connections – Aged-Out Foster Kids and Caring Adults,” an idea pitched by Ann McAlpin and supported by teammates Jill Beasle, Ken Goldstein, and Kait Steele.

We're so excited to attend this year's Minnesota Council of Nonprofits' annual conference, Nonprofits in Motion: Momentum for a New Minnesota, Nov. 6-7, in Saint Paul, Minnesota. NTENners, Megan Keane and Joleen Ong, will be speaking there, along with a number of NTEN Members in the Minnesota area and beyond.
